3 Ways to Emboss Resist with Versafine Clair & Joy Clair Stamps

This month Joy Clair is partnering with Imagine Crafts, specifically using the brand new Versafine Clair ink pads. Today I want to share with you three different ways to do the emboss resist technique with this new ink! It is a pigment ink and comes in so many great colors, all you need to emboss is a clear embossing powder and the ink retains it’s vibrant and gorgeous colors! Be sure and watch the video tutorial below to see this technique in action with three different products!

For the first card I am using the new Broken Brick Background Stamp. This is a 4 x 6 clear stamp that is a full background. Be sure and watch the video above to see a few tips and tricks on using these background stamps. I stamped in the Nocturne Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. With the heat embossing done I started sponging on Distress Inks. Because the heat embossing is a slick surface, it resists the ink and stays nice and black. You can use any dye or pigment ink for the color, just start light and build the colors so you don’t create any harsh lines. I finished this card off with a sentiment from the Inspirational Arrow set on the inside and out! Super simple!!

The next card is pretty similar to the first, just a different medium for the resist. I again stamped with a background stamp, this time the Crackle Background. I did use the same Nocturne ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. But this time I wanted to create a rainbow background and I used my Arteza watercolor brush pens. I put down a layer of color and using a water brush I spread and blended the colors together. Finally, I finished this card with the same Inspirational Arrows stamp set on the inside and outside!

My last card is very different! I used two color inks, Charming Pink and Green Oasis, and the God’s Masterpiece stamp set – specifically the splatters in the set to create a background. This is so easy to do with these inks, they stay wet long enough to stamp a few and then sprinkle on embossing powder, again I am using clear. After I stamped out the background, I decided to go for a spray as my medium. I went for the Tuxedo Black Fireworks spray from Imagine Crafts. This is beautiful and has a shimmery effect, but be warned, spray in a box!! This stuff gets everywhere!! Be sure and watch the video above to see how I finished off this card because it is a little more in depth!!
